Thanks for the kind words!

The shocking part was when Mrs. 66 turned to Mr. and said that he needed a bigger shop.

I'd say Mrs. 66 is a keeper!

Thanks so much for the update!

It's great to read that everything is now well sorted.

That's one good looking rampant lion.

Sounds like a most excellent visit at atelier gugie.

Where have you decided to fit the gugieficazione transfer?

I'm still out in the countryside, Walla Walla county. I've rode the Giubilato a couple a hundred miles maybe and I have to say Giubilato! My my this rides nice much better than my 86 Trek, much much better 84 Bianchi Nouva Alloro. Is this Aelle tubing comparable to strait gage 531? I guess yes, in contrast the 531 feels a little more stout, I've been a Peugeot 83 px10 and now a Raleigh Super Course as the standard. Both the Aelle and 531 are stiffer than the 2x butted. I think that the Aelle rode road feel was really close to that of Columbus Matrix than the 531.

This is build has other new trys for me never have I used these cranks, awesome, bb, just as good. Universal brake calipers, great! with the matching composite fiber levers, these are alright but the idea blows, they work but just don't gain my confidence. Syncro shifters, I don't know what to say other than they work sorta, They have not been adjusted since install.

Here are the pictures from the pass on 5 mile road in Walla Walla.

Very pretty bike; it looks better with the straightened fork

The current freewheel is a Regina Extra, the syncros was sold to me with six speed insert. I don't know much about the shifters but weren't they made to be compatible SR and Record groups? The shift spacing seems fine but after a while the shifter seems to settle and I'll get some chatter. Maybe this is the same issue, I've noticed let's say third gear if I down shift to 3 my alignment is not the same if I upshift to 3. I'm thinking about putting an adjuster in it's cable perhaps I can get it dialed in a little better.

Was this common for the Syncros Shifters?

I bought the shifters used, with the original packaging and instructions.


The Giubilato weighed in at 23lbs 8oz.

I'll leave it to others to answer the Syncros compatibility question, but I will say something isn't quite right with your RD setup. The main body is pivoted backwards and well past vertical in the small chainring. Look at pics of other NR setups and you'll see what I mean. Is it possible you put it back together incorrectly?

Looks like both our recently-purchased G-bikes far surpass our expectations (of at least being a perfectly nice bike). Looks great!

DD, the RD does look like it's oriented atypically. Wonder what's up.

I think Syncro was supposed to be compatible with other, earlier C-Record era stuff, but not NR. But that is just from memory. If it works, then sweet.

Thanks! Back home now, I checked the RD it looked fine, now, not on that picture. I think the new RD body got a little sticky from mounting the wheel. Gosh the pictures are about 8 miles into the ride I wonder if it snapped in place during my excursion.

The last sat ride I rode thread off this thing is blazing.
